The food was good... 2/2/2012

This place is really cute. We had reservations made about a month in advance and got there pretty early but we still had to wait about 15-20 mins and the lower level is really small and packed, so there isn't much room where to wait. The food was good and so was the wine. more

Great food, great wine, great atmosphere. The quality and freshness of the food is excellent, the steaks are unbelievable. more

is mostly just a name 10/3/2010

My husband took me to this restaurant for our aniversary, we were so excited. The ambiance was nice. The menu, we were expecting to have a wide variety of choices, as they showed in their webpage, sadly when we show up, they gave us sort of special menu with only a few choices. The waiter was not offered us the drink, the wine and no dessert. We had to asked for all this. The service was very rushed, it seems that they wanted to get rid of us, to fill another table. the reservation was for 9:00 pm! It was the worst anniversary Pro: Romantic Cons: Not a great variety to choose from, snoobish waiter. more

Wowie, amazing 9/11/2009

i read all sorts of reviews, and saw a lot of mixed opinions.... still, i was determined to try this restaurant.... well can i say, WOW!!!, it totally surpassed anything that i was expecting! the atmosphere is so pretty (get the patio!), the service was the best in LA(waiters are not stuffy or pretentious, can be really formal, or super chill, very good at reading the table and what you want), and the food was delish! i would love more wines by the glass, but the 1/2 bottle option kinda forced us to have that extra glass, that actually ends up making the last part of dinner that much more fun, ha.\r i will SO be back here, this is exactly what you want when you are craving a really warm, rich experience. loved it!! Pros: great service, romantic atmosphere, delicious food & wine Cons: if you find cons here you are too spoiled more

Ruined our Valentine's Day 8/19/2009

My husband took me to this restaurant for our First Valentine's Day as newly weds, we were so excited. The ambiance was nice. The menu, we were expecting to have a wide variety of choices, as they showed in their webpage, sadly when we show up, they gave us sort of special menu with only a few choices. The Food: There was a baby lobster, that actually looked more like a shrimp, because of its size. They served a very simple and expensive pasta, I guess it was just to fill the space in our stomach.The mushroom was under cook. We were expecting a lot more for what we paid (almost $300) The service was very rushed, it seems that they wanted to get rid of us, to fill another table. Advice, if you go for Valentine's be prepare to pay a lot for little. This was the worst Valentine's day Memory, that I'm trying to forget. Pros: Romantic Cons: Not a great variety to choose from, snoobish waiter. more

Romantic as romantic gets 8/5/2009

My date took me to Il Cielo. Props for picking such a incredible place. Absolutely beautiful! Unfortunately, my date's appeal ended in picking great spots. :) What's not to like? Great food, to die for patio and perfect drinks. Now I just need another date. Pros: ambiance, waiter, beautiful patio Cons: my date more

Romantic atmosphere but not much else 5/11/2009

My fiance and I were looking to have dinner in the area since we were in LA getting our wedding bands. I looked online for a nice Italian restaurant to try out since we were there for the evening. This restaurant had a beautiful garden atmosphere! However, our service and everything else about the experience were just awful which ruined the experience. I ordered a glass of white wine- pino grigio that came out to $12 dollars. We both ordered our own entrees and shared a salad. When we got the bill there was a charge that we split a salad even though we ordered our own entrees which was so ridicoulus! We both ate light and the bill came out to $100. Our service there was very poor. Our reservations were at 7:30 and we didnt get out food till way after 9 (we waited forever for the food there) and we finished our meal by 10 after we waited for the bill from the waiter for over 30 min. He never came by our table! It was very strange. We kept thinking is the waiter going to bring the bill by, we were kinda laughing to ourselves because it seemed very empty ourside for them to just forget about us. Yes, the place was very pretty outside, I loved it. However the treatment and the serice were very poor for the high price we paid. I think there are other places that are just as romantic, for the prices and the better service we should have went to Mortons. Anyway just thought I would warn other people about this place. Our experience there was not good at all. Pros: pretty garden area, romantic Cons: Awful service and high prices more

Romantic Restaurant 2/17/2009

After 8 years I decided to propose to my girlfriend. I was confused on what restaurant to choose from. I read good reviews for il Cielo, but i was concerned over the last bad reviews that were recently posted. Without knowing what to expect I made reservations on 2/16/09 at 6pm. It was a 45 min drive from orange county. As we entered the restaurant we were greeted and we sat by the entrance in the patio. We ordered our dinner and it was served in a short time. Following our delicious dinner we ordered our desserts and that's when I proposed. I asked the question of a lifetime and she said YES. After that before we left I asked if we could take pictures and Thomas Scalfaro, manager, took a few pictures of us. Once he knew I had proposed he felt bad that we didn't mention it earlier. He invited us to toast to end the best night of our lives. Overall the food was great, the service was great, the environment was great, and my only regret was not mentioning it was my engagement dinner. Pros: Service, Food, Staff, Manager Cons: Not mentioning it was my engagement dinner more

I am still offended... 2/9/2009

Wow. Il Cielo would not confirm my reservations for Valentine's dinner until I filled out a credit card authorization for the cost of dinner, tax and a 20% gratuity. The contract stated that if we were late, we would lose our reservation but be charged anyway. \r \r It boggles my mind that if an emergency were to make us late, we would be required to pay for a dinner we did not receive and tip 20% for service not provided. I can't believe they would assume I would not pay, tip appropriately or call if I am running late. Is this the type of clientele this restaurant attracts? I can't believe that businesses can operate this way. I guess I should be glad to learn how they operate before stepping foot inside the restaurant. \r \r I chose Inn of the Seventh Ray as a romantic alternative. more

Only OK... 1/25/2009

My boyfriend and I chose Il Cielo for our anniversary after reading rave reviews about it being the best romance/anniv. place. The outer area is under a tent canopy, decorated with strings of xmas lights all across the top (Many viewers claimed it was like looking up at the stars-It is not-you could do it at home yourself). They also had lamps/candles around rendering the place much brighter than a 'romantic' place should be. It was uncomfortable.\r The service was alright, but we had to push for it. We went on a Tuesday night at an early time (8pm) and had made reservations a week prior to avoid any seating/waiting complications. There were tons of open tables all around the area, but we were seated between two tables filled with old men in suits having a loud/good time. The tables are set up in rows with potted plants and vines as barriers, so one table of loud men was lass than 2 feet away from us with no sort of privacy since the potted plants are placed a meter apart from one another-I bumped elbows with our neighbors accidentally a few times. \r Due to the bright lights, and the close proximity of surrounding tables/lack of privacy, we felt very exposed, not comfortable whatsoever.(booth and corner lovers will know what I mean) It was very, very far from romantic.\r We asked to be reseated (since all tables around us were all available), and they did so immediately and apologetically. Our waiter was in-training, and very polite/customer oriented (we had to ask for silverware, etc...). It makes me wonder why they seated us in such an undesirable location in the first place-We had stressed it was for an anniversary occasion when we arrived. The new seat, though still bright, and next to the front door, was at least away from the gangs of old, loud suits. \r The food was not anything to write home about -I've made better pasta cabernera at home (it was too heavy) and the seafood paella was average. The price/food/service was all average for the area.\r Pros: Pretty, Food OK Cons: Not as 'romantic' as expected, everything only average considering reputaion more

Amore.... 11/3/2008

Wow, the rumor is true. This place is incredibly romantic. My boyfriend took me here for my birthday. I won't spoil it for those of you who haven't been, but everything was so nicely presented; the staff, the ambiance, the food, all of it! I absolutely suggest sitting outside if you want the full effect. And you must try the chocolate dessert - I think it has rasberry or something in it, but OMG it is luxurious. A must go! Pros: Professional staff, great ambiance more

great food, wonderful wine, great management 10/9/2008

My wife and I went for our third anniversary; the food, ambiance, and wine were great. Unfortunately our server was awful and we left feeling let down. The next day we emailed the restaurant to tell them about our experience; within an hour of sending the email the owner had me on the phone, apologizing left and right and asking us to come back as his guest. We just went back and they prepared a special tasting menu for us, including great wine pairings and awesome food. We spent the entire evening there and they really made us feel wonderful; they took a bad situation and turned it around, and for that we would highly recommend this place. We'll be going back for sure! Pros: food, wine Cons: location more

Best Engagement Proposal 10/4/2008

I decided to propose to my girlfriend, on her birthday, at one of the most romantic restaurants in Los Angeles! I had 6 bouquets of flowers delivered and was afraid that there might not be enough room on a table for two, so I requested a bigger table. The host called me back to let me know that since it was such a special occasion for me, that they would give me a PRIVATE ROOM and set up the flowers for me! The flowers were all set-up nicely, and the table had rose petals spread out on it. The two hosts and our waiter were extra attentive, extremely helpful, and exceeded all my expectations (which were high anyways)! THE BEST SERVICE, THE MOST ROMANTIC AMBIANCE, and they treated us like royalty. A Beverly Hills gem and fabulous experience! Pros: Ambiance, Service, Romantic, Helpful, Accomodate Special Requests more

Amazing Restaurant!!! 5/6/2008

My boyfriend took me to Il Cielo last night for my birthday. I'm very picky with restaurants, but this one was absolutely wonderful! The service was incredible, best service I've ever had (and I've eaten at some high profile places before)! Everyone from the car valet to the gentleman that opened the door for us to the waiters to, of course, our main waiter were extremely courteous, friendly and punctual. We had fresh mozarella with tomatoes for an appetizer, chicken and seafood with great wine for an entree, and an amazing warm chocolate volcano for dessert. Everything was extremely tasty! And the ambience of the restaurant is so romantic, the tables are well-spaced for more privacy, candles and flowers everywhere (we sat on the front patio), and great buddha-bar style music in the background. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone! Pros: Ambience, Romantic, Service...everything! more

all-around consistent, & romantic too! 2/21/2008

we always sit outside at the entrance area cuz that's the best place to sit as you get to feel the natural breeze (& not-too-hot heat lamps nearby in winter) & be under the stars & the moon (if they're out). to add to that, their blue icicle-lighting streaming overhead, canopied upward&downward like falling stars really makes the dining experience more pleasant and makes you wish you were in love or on a hot date. but it doesn't stop there. their food is excellent! we ordered 8 different things on the menu & all 8 exceeded our expectations (which hardly ever happens). we also recommend trying their flourless chocolate tarte for dessert! this place is an all-around consistent impressive dining venue.\r keyword: consistent. more

#1 intimate Resturant 1/21/2008

I was treated to this special place for dinner to celebrate my birthday. Upon arrival we were greeted at the door and taken to our table. The sommelier welcomed us and then introduced us to our waiter Michael. Michael asked us our names and promised us 10+ service for our dinning experience. After giving us the specials, we started with the calamari fritti con pomodoro. These had to be the best I?ve ever had, battered and fired to perfection. We all decided on the Scialatielli sorrentini con astice e pom odoretti that is severed with a whole Maine lobster. Our first selection of wine was Opus 1, but sadly they were out. The sommelier did offer Joseph Phelps Insignia 2003 30th anniversary wine. The wine was a very nice and smooth and a nice alternative to the Opus. The arrival of the food was timed perfectly to allow for us to enjoy the appetizer, wine and some conversation. Desert was a great chocolate mousse like cake that was perfection. They presented it on a plate and wrote in chocolate icing around the plate, Happy Birthday. I can say that this will be one birthday that I will not soon forget. Michael was an absolute gem and did provide the 10+ service he promised and more. Michael was very attentive, took time to ask questions about us and was willing to share about himself. The restaurant is very beautiful and intimate. Having been to many other 5 star restaurants, Il Cielo has now become my #1 restaurant and Michael my #1 waiter in LA area. Not only do you get what you pay for but so much more. Don?t let this great place pass you by. Pros: great food, great service, great staff more

Avoid like the plague. 12/15/2007

Upon arriving to the restaurant, there was no public parking. Luckily, there was a spot in the back of the restaurant where I put my car. ($6+ saved). Inside the restaurant we were greeted by 2 people, neither of which showed us to our table. ... We had reservations. But we WERE seated.\r \r Now, I'm 27... took my fiancee, and our 2 friends out for a birthday. I have a real job. Not some hourly do-nothing with a nametag.\r \r Once at our table, our waiter walked by us no less than 3 times before we got our drinks. Water and wine. Then we watched as tables around us were seated and promptly greeted by the same waiter. ... They also received their food ahead of us, and got a little small talk. When our food DID come, it was great. Everything looked great and everyone appeared to enjoy the food. Our waiter again, looking at us with disdain, as he cleared the table, not making any eye contact, let alone a smile... or even ask us if we needed anything. \r \r They cut our friends cake, for $16... because, according to the mgr, ""it wahz en outzide item..."" I'd have cut it for nothing. \r \r Bottom line: our bill came to $160+ (and we ate LIGHT), and because I'm NOT a jack*ss, I tipped. I'd have given more if the waiter wasnt a kn0b. The guys who brought water were AWESOME and nice. I phoned the manager who proceeded to spread the weak sauce all over our conversation. With his interruptions, and condescending remarks, I ended up hanging up on him. I'm not one to make a scene at the table. I wasnt out for hand-out, I didnt want anything for free, Hell, I didnt even want an apology. I just wanted to make him aware of what was going on. Instead, I got my waiter... in manager form. \r \r Just because I didnt pull up in a Ferrari, and wave $100's in front of my face, obviously made me less of a person.\r \r Il Cielo... Svck it. Pros: ... Um, food was pretty good. Cons: $$$$$! Service was sh1t! Waiter was rubbish... manager worse. more

HORRIBLE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8/31/2007

Completely disappointing..... where do I start. I actually read these reviews before making a reservation for my husbands birthday but decided to give it a try anyway... and we really ended up paying for it big time. My biggest complaint was the food. The calamari which was nothing spectacular and quite plain and our main dishes were so disgusting, I can't even describe it. Even worse, I ended up getting sick for two days from the lobster dish I ordered. So disappointing and even devastating because it was my husband's birthday.... NEVER again. Save your time and money (it's overpriced as well). more
